Hi everyone out there; my name is Ariel Turcios Du Puis. I am 40 years old. I was born in Honduras, Central America, but had the opportunity to travel with my parents to Ann Harbor when I was only 2 months old. English became my first language, though I also understood Spanish with no problem whatsoever. My dad is from Honduras and my mom is from the United States; California to be exact. I have two younger brothers, both American and currently living in the U.S. I am happily married and have been so for almost 15 years. I have three beautiful daughters. I have been a teacher for almost twenty years and have loved every minute. I must confess that being a teacher has been somewhat challenging at time, but these challenges have allowed me to grow both professionally and personally. I am always looking for ways to help others achieve their goal of learning a second language and hope I have the opportunity to be a part of what you guys are doing here.
